Steps To Becoming A Christian

Accepting Christ

If you have never accepted Christ as your savior, please do it now.
Don’t wait.  You may have already felt His presence in your life.
Maybe you’ve felt a desire to know Him but haven’t had the opportunity before?
You do now.

To accept Him is simple,

1. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
2. Believe that He died on the cross
    and was raised from the dead.
3. Know that He did this for you.
4. Acknowledge that you have sinned 
    by not knowing Christ and that you
    are in need of salvation.

The Roman Road to Salvation


The ROMANS ROAD....is a pathway you can walk. It is a group of Bible verses

from the book of Romans in the New Testament. If you walk down this road you

will end up understanding how to be saved.


Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” We all

have sin in our hearts. We all were born with sin. We were born under the power

of sin’s control. - Admit that you are a sinner.


Romans 6:23a “...The wages of sin is death...” Sin has an ending. It results

in death. We all face physical death, which is a result of sin. But a worse death is

spiritual death that alienates us from God, and will last for all eternity. The Bible

teaches that there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be in

torment forever. It is the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain.

- Understand that you deserve death for your sin.


Romans 6:23b “...But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our

Lord.” Salvation is a free gift from God to you! You can’t earn this gift, but you

must reach out and receive it. - Ask God to forgive you and save you.


Romans 5:8, “God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were

yet sinners Christ died for us!” When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin’s penalty.

He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself

on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is

that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are

now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us

and gave Himself for us! - Give your life to God... His love poured out in Jesus on

the cross is your only hope to have forgiveness and change. His love bought you

out of being a slave to sin. His love is what saves you -- not religion, or church

membership. God loves you!


Romans 10:13 “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved!”

- Call out to God in the name of Jesus!


Romans 10:9,10 “...If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe

in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the

heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses,

resulting in salvation.” - If you know that God is knocking on your heart’s door,

ask Him to come into your heart.


Jesus said,

Revelation 3:20a “Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone

hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him...” - Is Jesus knocking

on your heart’s door?

Believe in Him. Ask Him to come in to your heart by faith, and ask Him to

reveal Himself to you. Open the Bible to the Gospel of John and read what God

says about Jesus, about you, and about being born again.

God will help you. He loves you. You need to look for a local church where

God’s word is preached. The Bible says that we are to desire God’s word like a

newborn baby desires mother’s milk.

Aren’t you hungry to know the truth? Water baptism is one of the ways you

first show that you have been joined to Jesus. This is an action, and actions will

not save you. However, it is an act of obedience and a symbol of commitment.

The symbolism is this: When you go down in the water you show that you have

been crucified and buried with Him, and when you come up out of the water

you show that you have been raised to walk with Him in newness of life. (See

Romans chapter 6)


You have been born again. (See John chapter 3) Your body has become God’s

temple. Your heart is where He lives. Forgiveness is yours in Jesus. And you belong

to Him. You were sin’s slave. But now...You are a child of GOD!


John 1:12 “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become

children of God, even to those who believe in His name!”

If you are ready to accept Christ into your heart today, then please read this prayer aloud.

Lord God,
I do believe that your son is Jesus.
I believe he died on the cross
and was raised from the dead
for me and for my sins.
Please forgive me for those sins.
Come into my life
that I may have an everlasting life
with you in Heaven, forever.

Our prayer for you

May God's blessings overwhelm you. May His peace surround you and may
His grace sustain you now and forever as you work toward the full healing
that only Christ can offer.
